Why not use real transformer oil?
Shell Diala-AX is the real stuff and is cheaper than the other alternatives
My 2-cents worth...

Wow! One I can answer. No, mineral oil is not motor oil. Cheapest
place we found mineral oil is in horse tack shops, sells by the
gallon....in our area about $8.00 per gal. Can also purchase it in
pharmacies, but will pay lots more, $1.39 a pint.
Harold's big plate cap was submerged in 4 gallons of the stuff. Worked
Incidentally coilers, little dummy here is going to try to construct her
Presents a real challenge for me.
